Lovely place, cozy, clean. If you are looking for privacy, do not book the River View or Forest View cabins as they are attached and you can hear EVERYTHING that is going on next door. We also needed to have night maintenance come out to check on a scratching noise that was happening every night. It sounded to us like an animal under the cabin, which can be understood staying in the woods. Maintenance assured us however that it was the heating system making that awful noise that was disturbing our sleep every night for all 3 nights of our stay. Maybe then the heating system needs an update, because it was beyond disruptive in the lovely little cabin. The front desk is not available after 9, so you are on your own until 8AM the next morning if issues do arise. We had contacted the office months ahead of time to let them know we would be celebrating an elopement. There was no effort or acknowledgment made of this at all, so they are not the warmest, or excited to share in the purpose of your stay; if you are looking for a warm, friendly greeting, do not expect it here. Overall, it is cute, quaint and we enjoyed the clean cabin, but the "noises" and non-personal feel did put a large damper on our stay.
